Crisis or Adventure

What you see in your life is all about PERSPECTIVE. 

It’s funny how one person can see things one way and another person can see it completely differently. Here’s a valuable lesson I learned this year.

Everything can be a CRISIS or ADVENTURE…it’s your decision.

What does that mean? We all encounter difficult, struggle, resistance and tough times. Life comes with these things whether you like it or not. But how you respond is 100% in your control.

You’ve probably seen some people respond to every struggle as a CRISIS. The news prays on them. Their head gets filled with a dark cloud of fear, what-if’s, and visions of everything going to hell in a handbasket. 

To these people, every single issue (big or small) is a crisis and they pull everyone along for the emotional roller coaster. It’s exhausting and you have to protect yourself from them because it can be draining mentally and it’s bad for mental health. 

There’s also people who look at problems with a sense of adventure.

They see it as a modern day treasure hunt. The obstacles are simply a map they must navigate to get to the buried treasure. There’s danger all around but it’s a thrill and makes the journey exciting. They are grateful for the people around them because they know they have their back.

They look at the struggles of life as something to figure out. Like a rubix cube, it can be solved if you just work at it. They don’t complain and whine about problems, they just have a figure-it-out mindset because every problem has a solution.

They don’t see the point in dwelling on the problem and complaining about it because it gets you nowhere. They also know that problems are endless. Once you solve one, two more will pop up and that’s where their adventure-mindset serves them. They know it’s a part of life so you might as well make the best of it.

How does this apply to you and your business?

The holidays can be a time of CRISIS or ADVENTURE based on your perspective. 

It’s a holi-DAY. One day. It’s not a holi-week or a holi-month. We can’t let our health, routine and habits all meltdown because of one day. That’s not going to lead to long-term success because there’s a holiday inside almost every month. That means you can’t operate all year long.

A good leader shows WHAT to do to change your life.

A great leader shows you HOW TO THINK so you can navigate tough times.

This is the time of year where the people around you need the most mindset coaching so they don’t throw a wrench in their momentum. If they don’t have a goal or north star to chase, they can find a list of reasons to quit until 2024.

Let’s coach our clients to look at the holidays as an adventure that we can tackle together!
